DAVIS, CA – The Commission on Human Relations met on Thursday, April 28 to discuss the effect of hateful comments in the media. This discussion was a follow-up to a previous meeting in March and followed up on a request sent earlier in the year.

At the November and January meetings of the Human Relations Commission, community member Alan Hirsch requested that the commission discuss the effect of hateful comments in the media. In response, the commission agreed to have the anti-hate subcommittee look into the matter and prepare for a discussion in March.

At the March meeting, Commissioner Edgar Wong-Chen explained, “There are things happening in our society that we can consider offensive and egregious. We want to do things proactively and I think the challenge we faced was that we raised a topic – how do we act on it? What are some very specific actions we could actually take that could help address these particular issues? »

In the most recent discussion of this topic, the Human Relations Committee met to “discuss stories and news headlines as portrayed by various media outlets and how they can lead to the stress many are already experiencing” , according to Human Relations President NJ Mvondo. .

The conversation began with Commissioner Connor Gorman imploring the commission to move in the direction of thinking about broader structures and institutions in the context of hate and prejudice.

“Some of the big things that we could discuss are all the different forms of bias and hate, including the implicit and structural ones, and what is the commission’s role in addressing those issues,” Gorman said.

Wong-Chen described two paths the commission must take – one focusing on creating and expanding the definition of a hate crime, and the other on providing “service to the city ​​and responding to immediate needs or preemptively resolving what might occur. pipeline with all the noticeable culture wars that are going wrong right now.

Following Gorman’s prompt, Mvondo offered to make resources for communities affected by prejudice and oppression more readily available on the commission’s website and Facebook page. “[For example], our public library offers anti-Asian resources. This is something we could share on the Facebook page to remind people.

Commissioner Angela Wilson added: “It might be a good idea to have a link on our website that points to the police department for reporting hate crime and how they define it and what laws apply.”

However, Gorman challenged that idea, saying, “I’m a little uncomfortable putting a link to the police department on our website. I understand that with respect to hate crimes in particular, it’s the department that currently deals with them because we haven’t restructured things in a way that takes that away from policing. Nevertheless, the police have a lot of trouble perpetuating the oppression in many cases.

Instead, he suggested that in addition to a link to the police department, the commission could include a “disclaimer stating that [the police department] is the department that currently handles these things, but we nevertheless recognize that there are problems with the police services.

As to his initial discussion regarding discrimination in the context of institutions, Gorman added, “The definition of a hate crime is an important thing to discuss. We need to tackle hate crimes and our definition should be broader than it is. We should also think about those things that aren’t considered hate crimes but are just seen as part of the fabric of our society… And I think that’s true in the media but also in culture and institutions. The way things are structured, there’s a lot of oppression and different forms of prejudice that are embedded in the way we think we think.

Gorman continued to propose launching political education projects on discrimination in major institutions to accompany statements, messaging and education on hate crimes and explicit instances of prejudice and bias.

Kate Snow, an ex-officio member of the Davis Joint Unified School District, introduced the commission to “Not in our towna Montana-based organization that formed in response to attacks on Jewish families in Billings, Montana.

“The city came together to say ‘we don’t want this in our city,'” Snow said. “We could take inspiration from this organization.

Mvondo noted that the anti-hate subcommittee needs to continue researching “Not in Our Town” and discussing how to implement programs similar to Davis.

Thursday’s discussion ended with a promise to continue the conversation in future meetings with the Human Relations Commission.

“I suggest that we continue to dig deeper into this with the aim of coming up with very clearly defined action steps that we can then implement,” Mvondo concluded.

AGs sue Biden administration for claiming it colluded with social media giants to censor speech | national news https://rtlmt.org/ags-sue-biden-administration-for-claiming-it-colluded-with-social-media-giants-to-censor-speech-national-news/ Fri, 06 May 2022 19:25:00 +0000 https://rtlmt.org/ags-sue-biden-administration-for-claiming-it-colluded-with-social-media-giants-to-censor-speech-national-news/ (The Center Square) – As states push back on Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ plan to fight “disinformation,” two attorneys general have sued him, President Joe Biden and other top responsible for claiming they colluded with social media companies to censor speech.

(The Center Square) – As states push back on Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ plan to fight “disinformation,” two attorneys general have sued him, President Joe Biden and other top responsible for claiming they colluded with social media companies to censor speech.

The Missouri and Louisiana attorneys general filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Monroe Division. They sued Biden, former press secretary Jen Psaki, surgeon general Vivek Murthy, HHS secretary Xavier Becerra, Dr. Jankowicz, and others.

Attorneys general said Biden and his officials colluded with big tech companies, including Meta, Twitter and Youtube, to censor truthful information about a range of issues – including the coronavirus, election integrity and the Hunter Biden’s laptop – under the guise of fighting ‘misinformation’. .”

Biden and his officials “have coerced, threatened and pressured social media platforms to censor disadvantaged speakers and viewpoints using threats of adverse government action,” and are “now directly colluding with social media platforms.” social media to censor disadvantaged speakers and viewpoints,” the AGs argue. This violates the First Amendment, the Administrative Procedure Act, and exceeds legal authority, the AGs claim. The creation of a disinformation committee by DHS also violates federal laws, according to the complaint filed Thursday.

“In direct violation of the First Amendment and freedom of speech, the Biden administration has engaged in a malignant campaign to pressure social media giants to censor and suppress speech and work directly with those platforms to achieve this censorship in a misguided and Orwellian campaign. against ‘misinformation,'” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said.

“Big Tech has become an extension of Biden’s Big Government, and neither protects American freedoms; instead, they suppress the truth and demonize those who think differently,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said. “Ripped from the playbook of Stalin and his ilk, Biden colluded with Big Tech to censor free speech and propagandize the masses. We fight back to ensure the rule of law and stop the government from unconstitutionally banning, chilling and stifling speech.

They cite examples of then-presidential candidate Biden seeking to have speeches censored by social media companies. In a Jan. 17, 2020, interview with the New York Times editorial board, Biden said Section 230 should be revoked because social media companies weren’t doing enough to censor information. It also “suggested that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg be subject to civil and even criminal prosecution for failing to sufficiently censor political speech,” the brief states.

He also cites examples of Psaki and Murthy saying at press briefings that Facebook and social media platforms should do more to combat health “misinformation.” Schmitt posted excerpts of their remarks on Twitter.

“We’re saying we expect more from our technology companies,” Murthy said. …. We ask them to monitor disinformation more closely. We call on them to consistently take action against superspreaders of misinformation on their platforms,” the complaint states.

PSAKI also told reporters: “‘[W]We are in regular contact with these social media platforms, and these engagements usually happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team, given, as Dr. Murthy, that this is a big misinformation issue, especially about the pandemic.’ She added, “We flag problematic posts for Facebook that spread misinformation.”

Last February, following Spotify’s decision to add advisory disclaimers to Joe Rogan’s podcast, PSAKI said, “…we want every platform to continue to do more to expose…misinformation and misinformation while providing accurate information”.

The lawsuit also says Facebook censored the posts after Fauci, “in coordination with others, orchestrated a campaign to discredit the lab leak hypothesis in early 2020,” the complaint states. “At the same time as he was orchestrating a campaign to falsely discredit the lab leak theory, Dr. Fauci was exchanging emails with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg regarding the control and dissemination of COVID-19 information. 19.”

Facebook has partnered “with government experts, health authorities, and researchers to take ‘aggressive action against misinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines to protect public health,'” according to Facebook statements cited in the complaint.

AGs point to Twitter’s policy of labeling and deleting posts from anyone claiming face masks don’t prevent the spread of coronavirus, and Youtube censoring U.S. Senator Rand Paul, R-Kentucky and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after questioning the mask’s effectiveness.

The lawsuit was filed after she joined 18 other AGs in demanding that the Mayorkas immediately disband the DHS Disinformation Committee. Schmitt was also alarmed by the comments made by his new director.

She “called for more aggressive censorship of election-related speech by social media platforms, and suggested that social media censorship of election-related speech should never relent or be reduced,” he said. declared.

On Sunday, May 15 at 2 p.m., the Fort Phil Kearny/Bozeman Trail Association (FPK/BTA) will present a dual program at Kearney Community Hall, sponsored in part by the Johnson County Tourism Association.

FPK Superintendent Sharie Shada will provide an update on the Shining Mountain Interpretive Center at Fort Phil Kearny Historic Site.

According to Dave McKee, president of the association, “it is the current reception center that will be remodeled, expanding the area of ​​interpretive material and expanding our library. It will also include an outdoor amphitheater for programs.

Fort Phil Kearny was the largest of the three palisaded forts along the Bozeman Trail. Colonel Carrington felt the stockade was necessary due to the hostile nature of the Sioux surrounding the fort. Eight-foot-high log walls surrounded an area of ​​17 acres.

Today, the old fort is a Wyoming State Historic Site and a National Historic Landmark. There is an interpretive center to introduce visitors to the fort and its place in western history. Visitors can see the reconstructed palisade walls and extensive grounds of the largest palisade fort in the west. Signs have been put up to inform visitors of the location of the original buildings.

Bozeman to Fort Fetterman Trail Marker

That same evening, McKee will present a program on “The Bozeman Trail: A Journey to National Historic Trail Designation”

The Bozeman Trail, named for John Bozeman, one of the surveyors, was a more direct route to the gold fields of Montana from 1863 to 1868. Jim Bridger recommended the western route, which bypassed the hunting grounds of the Sioux, but Bozeman promoted the most direct route, which ran through Indian Territory. The trail went from Fort Laramie to Fort Fetterman, and from there along the eastern slope of the Bighorn Mountains near Sheridan, Wyoming.

Today, several stone monuments mark the old trail, and in some places the ruts of the Bozeman Trail are still visible. There will be several benefits to designating the Bozeman Trail as a National Historic Trail.

On May 25 at 6 p.m. there will be a presentation of wildflowers and native plants at the Wagon Box Monument given by Mae Smith of Sheridan College.

These programs are free and everyone is welcome.

The Fort Phil Kearny/Bozeman Trail Association is a non-profit organization. Their mission is to preserve, develop and promote historic sites and battlefields near Fort Phil Kearny and along the Bozeman Trail. They work closely with the state agency that owns the FPK sites.

They also strive to adapt Indian history, culture and interpretation. Educating the general public about all historic sites along the Bozeman Trail, and the Bozeman Trail itself, is a priority for the Association.

For more information on the Fort and the Bozeman Trail, or any of the programs, please visit their website, www.fortphilkearny.com.

Jeff Welsch, Lee Enterprises

As journalists, those of us who produce content for Lee Enterprises’ five Montana newspapers believe strongly in freedom of expression.

But freedom of expression is not always without consequences and ramifications. Consider shouting “fire” in a crowded theater.

The same goes for our social media pages, which since their inception have included reasonable rules of engagement with the aim of ensuring civil discourse – making it clear that violators would be subject to hidden posts and outright bans. and simple.

Unfortunately, our pages on Facebook and Twitter have become landing pages for too many trolls, bots and content that we would never allow in print or online.

So, starting this week, we are committing to more rigid oversight, regardless of political beliefs or affiliation. In addition to hiding posts or banning profane or obscene content and language, hate speech or bullying, personal attacks, and content that promotes, encourages, or perpetuates discrimination, we will also ban outright trolls and simple.

People also read…

To help limit such consequences, Lee Montana has compiled a (long) list of inappropriate words and phrases that will be automatically removed or hidden. This list is up on Facebook pages associated with the Billings Gazette, The Montana Standard, Helena Independent Record, Missoulian, and Ravalli Republic.

Our fervent hope is that our social media accounts will be a place where readers with a wide variety of perspectives can freely participate in civil discourse about what matters most to Montana people.

Thank you to our readers for making Montana’s digital newspapers one of the fastest growing in the industry.

A preliminary hearing was held Monday in Sheridan County Circuit Court for Christian Torres, who is charged with second-degree murder for allegedly killing his father, Edgar “Eddie” Jones, 47, at a Dayton home on July 27, 2021. Torres attempted to flee to Billings, Montana in his father’s truck, but crashed the vehicle near Hardin, Montana. Torres told a Montana state trooper that he killed his father in Dayton. Torres was 15 when the alleged crime happened – he is being tried as an adult. The case was returned to Circuit Court for a preliminary hearing because Sheridan County Assistant District Attorney Christopher LaRosa changed the charge from second-degree murder to first-degree murder. First degree murder is punishable by life imprisonment when the person convicted of the crime was under the age of 18 at the time of the offence.

Sheridan County Sheriff’s Deputy Boot Hill was the only prosecution witness in Monday’s hearing. During his testimony, Hill testified that Eddie Jones was not the defendant’s biological father, but rather a state-appointed guardian. Hill testified that the firearm that was used to kill Eddie Jones was a .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol and the autopsy confirmed that Jones had been shot in the back while sitting on the bed in his bedroom and that the firearm belonged to the accused’s brother. Riley Jones.

During the ongoing investigation into the case, Deputy Hill said he took into evidence a backpack belonging to the defendant which contained a notebook with references to “Star Wars” execution orders and to the terminology of various video games. There were what were described as encrypted messages in the notebook and a checklist or inventory of many items that were found at the crash site near Hardin. Circuit Court Judge Shelley Cundiff determined there was probable cause to tie the case to the district court on the amended charge of first-degree murder.

Twitter is “ready to accept” Elon Musk’s offer to buy the social media company.

The 50-year-old multi-billionaire made an offer to buy the social networking site for $41.39 billion in mid-April after initially buying a 12.5% ​​stake in the company and reportedly had a meeting with the 11-member board that could see negotiations concluded as soon as later today (4/25/22), according to the New York Times.

The outlet then described the alleged meetings as a “turning point” for the microblogging platform’s privatization plan and claimed its offer to buy the site for $54.20 per share was a nod to the number 420, which is a cultural slang term. for marijuana.

Despite initial concerns about exactly how the CEO would raise the funds to facilitate the mammoth purchase, The New York Times claimed that Musk had struck a deal with investment bankers at Morgan Stanley to loan him $100,000. money of just under $25 billion to help fund the deal and that he would pay the rest in cash.

The Tesla founder – who is ranked as the world’s richest man with an estimated net worth of almost $265 billion – has previously insisted his planned takeover of Twitter is not an exercise in money making, but rather a way to ensure that there is a platform that can be “trusted” and is “widely diverse”.

Speaking at the TED conference in Vancouver on Thursday (14.04.22), Elon – who tweets frequently and has 83.3 million followers – said: “Twitter has become a kind of de facto public square. So it’s very important that people have both the reality and the perception that they are able to express themselves freely within the bounds of the law. This is not a way to make money. My strong intuitive feeling is that “Having a broadly inclusive, maximum-trust public platform is extremely important. So the future of civilization, but you don’t care about the economy at all.”

Keira Knightley says social media is a “wormhole that I don’t need to go down”.

The ‘Love Actually’ star thinks it would be “exhausting” to make her life “more perfect than it is” online and has resisted the urge to become a social media user.

She said, “I’m so happy [not being on social media].

“I had little moments, I mean, not for years, where I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I should do this’ or ‘I should at least do this in private.’ And then I thought to myself. said, ‘No, I shouldn’t.'”

The 37-year-old actress – who has Edie, six, and Delilah, two, with husband James Righton – has also been put off by her friends receiving “depressed” scrolling apps.

She continued, “And what’s really funny is obviously most of my friends are in it and all they talk about is how depressed it makes them. So I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m definitely not going to do that then.'”

Keira added to PEOPLE, “I would just be obsessed with trying to make my life a lot more perfect than it is, and that seems pretty exhausting.
